VIRGINIANS WIN IN LAST SECOND
Field Goal as Five Minutes Overtime Period Ends Defeats Wildcat Organization
SCORE WAS TIED TEN TIMES
Charlottesville, Va. - Dick Carrington, the University of Virginia's little forward, tossed a spectacular field goal here tonight that gave his quintet a 32 to 30 victory over the University of Kentucky. The shot came just as the crack of the timer's pistol announced the end of a five minute overtime period that had to be played to decide the contest which ended 28 to 28.
The game was a thriller from start to finish and the Wildcats proved to be the doughtiest opponents that have faced the Orange and Blue on the home floor this season. The half ended with the home lads on the long end of a 17 to 12 count. The Virginia quint was decidedly crippled in the second half through the loss of Oppleman, who was ejected with four personal fouls against him.
In this period, the Kentuckians found the basket and through some deftly tossed throws by Adkins, assumed a two point lead.
With the score standing 28 to 28 at the beginning of the extra period, King sank a field goal for the Wildcats and Mahood tied the count a minute later. This score held until Carrington scored the winning goal.
The contest was the most thrilling ever staged in Fayerwether gymnasium. Four times the score was tied in last ten minutes of play. Virginia apparently had the game won near the close of the second period, but a spectacular goal by Hayden just as the whistle sounded knotted the count for the southern intercollegiate champions.
The Kentuckian have fared badly in Old Dominion territory, having lost to V.M.I. by 37 to 32. They took Washington and Lee into camp however, 21 to 20.
